Triple students’ rate of academic growth in just one year!
We are living in what is called a “Clarity Crisis”— the perfect storm of brand-new standards, or a change of standards from Common Core to a new version of state standards, new assessments, and potentially new curriculum. Teacher Clarity, on the other hand, can be defined as clear learning intentions, clear success criteria, and clear learning progressions for every unit of study which empowers students to eventually own their own learning. With an effect size of .75, Teacher Clarity supports and makes all other influences on student achievement possible, including Assessment-Capable Learners, Response to Intervention, Classroom Intervention, and Meaningful Feedback, to name a few.
However, if the teachers aren’t clear on these goals, how can our students be? The Clarity process begins with designing a unit of study which is focused on mastering success criteria for one learning intention for the unit. Educators then identify the learning progressions, the building blocks of learning, which are essential to obtaining that learning intention. This also helps with the “Why?” – Why are teachers doing this? Why are students doing this? Finally, detailed success criteria are created for every progression for every day under that unit of study.
By coming to the Teacher Clarity Institute, attendees will join Tommy Thompson and
Bundle the institute with the Common Formative Assessment 2.0 (CFA 2.0) eCourse to help you understand the step-by-step approach of CFA 2.0, including Learning Intentions, Success Criteria, and Scoring Guides which provide the foundation for Teacher Clarity. To gain credible evidence that students are achieving the learning intentions quality formative assessments are needed, that's where CFA 2.0 comes in! Built specifically just for you and other institute attendees, this eCourse will be facilitated by Sonja Alexander and Tommy Thompson. Come to the institute already familiar with the content and the speakers and with connections made during the eCourse! Simply add the eCourse to your cart when registering for the institute!
